3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought through Systembolaget. Pours black with a rather big creamy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates without leaving much trace. Smell is sweet and malty with dark bread, orange peal, roasted malts, sheet metal, liquorice root, caraway, burnt toast, prunes, coffee and some rather unwelcome hints of phenols. Taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, salty liquorice, coffee, burnt toast, toffee, wood, dark bread, brown sugar, vanilla fudge and hints of metal and orang zest. Mouthfeel is smooth, watery and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with burnt toast, wood, coffee and vanilla. Doesn’t smell very inviting but the bad smell hides a tasty stout.
